50th anniversary of the signing of the Élysée Treaty
The coin, which was designed by Yves Sampo of the Monnaie de Paris, Stefanie Lindner of the Berlin State Mint, Alina Hoyer (Berlin) and Sneschana Russewa-Hoyer (Berlin), depicts stylised portraits of the Élysée Treaty’s signatories (the then-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Konrad Adenauer and the former President of the French Republic Charles de Gaulle), their signatures and the words ‘50 ANS JAHRE’ with the year ‘2013’ in the centre, the words ‘TRAITÉ DE L’ÉLYSÉE’ at the top and the words ‘ÉLYSÉEVERTRAG’ at the bottom. The right side of the inner part features the mint mark as well as the issuing country’s code ‘RF’ and the left side features the ‘fleurette’, hallmark of the engraving workshop.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
